Do you have ques­tions re­gard­ing the na­ture of ballin’? Jer­maine Dupri is here to an­swer them…

Dear J.D.

In your col­lab­o­ra­tion with Clipse on the track “Let’s Talk About It,” you say the fol­low­ing: “Now as the game ro­tates, and my chrome gets big­ger more and more girls wan­na fuck this nig­ga.” My ques­tion re­lates to the pro­por­tion­al­i­ty of my chrome in di­rect re­la­tion to the ro­ta­tion of my game. Care­ful ob­ser­va­tion has led me to be­lieve that while in fact my game has and does con­tin­ue to ro­tate, the size of my chrome has re­mained static.

The ab­sence of any sort of cor­re­la­tion has proved trou­ble­some due to the fact that the un­chang­ing na­ture of my chrome seems to strict­ly lim­it the num­ber of girls that “wan­na fuck.” My ques­tion re­lates to your use of the con­nec­tive “and.” Is “and” in­tend­ed to im­ply a di­rect re­la­tion­ship or sim­ply as a conjunction?

I hope you can help me out,


Billings, Mon­tana


Dear Ben,

Thank you for you in­quiry. With re­gards to your ques­tion, I think you may find that the ro­ta­tion of your game is in di­rect pro­por­tion with the size of your chrome. I think you will find the prob­lem lies with­in your men­tal­i­ty and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of “game”, and not with­in the var­i­ous se­man­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tions of my lyric. In fur­ther lis­ten­ing to that spe­cif­ic verse I think you will find the key to your prob­lem. Imag­ine the con­tin­u­a­tion of the verse, in essence, as fur­ther con­di­tions which must be met in or­der for the true ro­ta­tion of your game.

“They can tell a true playa by the clothes that I wear

Game that I spit and the length of my hair”

From this you can tell, that in or­der for these girl to “wan­na fuck,” you must al­so ful­fill the qual­i­ties of a true play­er, on­ly then can your game ro­tate (and your chrome in­crease in size proportionally).
